Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Board Resources
The BPAB Committee of the Whole was established to provide a consistently scheduled publicly accessible venue for the advisory board to spend additional time to clarify recommendations to be submitted to the City prior to approval at the regular full advisory board meetings. As with all board meetings, this meeting is open to everyone and additional citizen input is encouraged.
Membership shall be representative of bicycling organizations, bicycle dealers, organizations concerned with education and safety, business organizations and private citizens concerned with non-motorized transportation issues (i.e. commuting, persons with disabilities, aging community, recreations, high school students). Qualifications include being a resident of the City of Missoula.
Appointment by the Mayor is subject to Council confirmation.
